A married couple trying to live up to a snobbish New York lifestyle went to an up-scale party. The conversation turned to Mozart.
"Absolutely brilliant, magnificent, a musical genius!"
The woman, wanting to join in the conversation, remarked casually, "Ah, Mozart. You're so right. I love him. Only this morning I saw him getting on the No. 5 bus going to Yankee Stadium."
There was a sudden hush, and everyone looked at her. Her husband was mortified. He pulled her away and whispered, in anger, "We're leaving right now. Get your coat and let's get out of here."
As they drove home, he kept muttering to himself. Finally his wife turned to him. "You're angry about something."
"Oh, really? You noticed?" he sneered. "I've never been so embarrassed in my life! You saw Mozart take the No. 5 bus to Yankee Stadium? You idiot! Everybody knows the No. 5 bus doesn't go out to Yankee Stadium!"
